Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon to Have Multiplayer!

Awesome news from Nintendo about their upcoming title Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon.  Here’s some blurbs from their press release:

…in a series first, the game will feature local and online multiplayer modes, as well as Download Play capabilities.”

Join up with up to four players and journey into the ScareScraper, which is jam-packed with paranormal creatures. … In Hunter Mode, each player controls a different color Luigi and is challenged to hunt down ghosts and use effective teamwork to clear each floor of the tower before the clock strikes zero. Bonuses and upgrades can be earned depending on how well the team performs. There are also boss battles at the top of each tower. Players can choose the number of floors in this mode ranging from five, 10 or 25. They can adjust the difficulty to cater to both new and veteran gamers. Fallen players can even be revived by their teammates to keep the adventure going.

Sounds like an excellent addition to an already well done game if it is as good as the last.  LM2 comes out on March 24 for $39.99.  This is another title they are going to have available for download as well.  I’m not sure this is one that I’m sold on as a download title.  I’ll definitely be picking it up though.

Love it or hate it, let me know!
